EMO Energy, a Bengaluru-based battery-tech startup, has raised INR 10 crore ($1.2 million) in a seed round led by Transition VC and co-led by Gruhas.
EMO offers battery packs for light EVs. Its battery packs are powered by ZEN, a cell-agnostic tech platform that, the company claims, allows 100% fire safety, 20-minute fast charging, and 120% improvement in battery life.
EMO’s co-founder and CEO, Sheetanshu Tyagi, said, “EMO’s goal is to enable mass adoption of EVs and energy storage systems (ESS) by deploying our patented battery tech platform ZEN across applications that demand high power and high energy.”
The platform’s first application is ZEN PAC, a portable 20-min charge battery pack for two- and three-wheelers. ZEN PAC uses EMO’s patented battery construction, immersion thermal management systems and life extension algorithms.
EMO claims ZEN PAC offers the lowest total operating cost of INR 1/km and 120% improvement in the life of standard NMC and LFP cells. It has been proven for >10,000 km with multiple OEMs and fleet operators across the most extreme environmental conditions (-20 to 60 degrees C).
Transition VC is also enabling EMO’s access to the grid storage market (for residential and commercial applications such as lead-acid battery and diesel genset replacement).
